About Bivik Shah:

Dr. Bivik Shah started the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery, serving Columbus and Dayton, Ohio, because he wanted to create an environment in a private practice setting that left every patient satisfied and comfortable. He strives to make his patients feel cared for and important as they attempt to meet each and every medical and personal need. 

Dr. Shah grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He earned an electrical engineering degree from the University of Michigan before returning to Ohio to attend medical school at Ohio State University. Dr. Shah later joined the faculty of Ohio State University, where he was responsible for performing surgery on some of the city's most complicated burn and reconstruction cases.

Dr. Shah is actively involved in Operation Smile, which provides voluntary care to children around the world and in the United States who are born with facial deformities. Dr. Shah has been on four separate Operation Smile missions, visiting Thailand, India, Honduras, and Bolivia to provide care to children born with cleft lip and cleft palate deformities. During the Operation Smile missions, which last for one or two weeks, Dr. Shah, and fellow volunteers operate for charity on about 100-150 children, providing them with new smiles and a renewed hope for the future.

Dr. Shah is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Burn Association, the Ohio State Medical Association, and the Columbus Medical Association.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Shah listens to what you would like and gives his advice.


I had indicated before I drove over and hour that I had a short window in which to get lipo and even had her go over the schedule before I scheduled my consultation. She indicated surgery could be within 3-4 weeks. When I got there, I waited about an hour before my consultation began. It was very quick and not as personable as I would have liked. Then I was advised surgery would be 2-3 months out. It was a complete waste of time for me. Honestly, I felt like a number.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Shah was fantastic at answering all my questions and even ones I didn't think to ask. He made me feel very comfortable and at ease. All his staff has been very helpful as well. My nurse is Jackie and she is great at texting me to keep me up to date on everything as well as answering any concerns I have. I have surgery in the morning and am so excited!!! I was actually referred to Dr. Shah by a friend who also had a breast augmentation so I know he does great work, can't wait to see the outcome.

Neck Lift

Dr. Shah took his time and answered all my questions. He didn't rush through our appointment, but took his time to make sure I feel comfortable. He makes me feel like I'm his only patient.

Breast Augmentation

Very helpful staff, who answered all questions I had and put me at ease with my concerns. I did not feel rushed or pressured into anything at my consultation!

Breast Augmentation

I have been very selective in which doctors to consider doing my surgery. I have had several other consultations and had even met with a facility in Washington that I was strongly considering. It didn't even take me 20 minutes with Dr. Shah before I knew without a doubt I wanted him to do the surgery. He is amazing, caring, knowledgeable and honest about what he thinks would be right for me and my body. All qualities that were important to me when finding and selecting a doctor and he happened to have all of them! I'm beyond excited to have him perform my surgery and see what amazing work he will do for my body! Thank you Dr. Shah!

Breast Augmentation

I appreciated the honesty during my consult. I never felt rushed and that Dr. Shah took the time to answer all my questions! Dr. Shah also agreed to perform my surgery on a Thursday, so I was able to schedule my upcoming surgery before my Spring break so it worked with my work schedule. I have the count down on my calendar!

Dr. Shah listened to my needs, didn't oversell me on procedures that I didn't need, and the product is absolutely amazing. I wore a bikini too this weekend for the first time and I felt confident and satisfied with my decision.
